WHITE FOXX – Come Pet The Foxx (Album Review)

WHITE FOXX – Come Pet The Foxx (Album Review)

Are you familiar with bands like Cinderella, Britny Fox, Tangier and Heaven’s Edge? Ever heard of White Foxx? You will probably say yes to the first question and there is a high probability you will say no to the second. Still, there are a lot of similarites between all these bands which shared musical vision, played the same club circuit and even shared lots members. White Foxx played an important part in Philadelphia’s metal scene…

RAM JAM – Portrait of an Artist as a Young Ram (That 70’s Guy Retro Review)

RAM JAM – Portrait of an Artist as a Young Ram (That 70’s Guy Retro Review)

RAM JAM – Introduction Welcome again to “That 70’s Guy’s Retro Review”. For this month’s hidden gem, I have chosen from 1978, Ram Jam – Portrait of an Artist as a Young Ram. I was beginning to wonder why there’s been so many from 1978. It’s because when we rockers, being slowly squeezed out by the disco invasion, actually found an album that rocked, its presence was even more memorable and special. Bands like Riot,…

THUNDERMOTHER – Thundermother (Album Review)

THUNDERMOTHER – Thundermother (Album Review)

THUNDERMOTHER – Bio Thundermother are an all female rock and metal outfit hailing from Stockholm in Sweden. They have two previous albums, which are full of AC/DC style riffs and songs. This, their third, is self-titled and is different from the previous outings inasmuch as it is really a brand new band. Only guitarist Filippa Nassil survives from the original incarnation. The band has also dropped from five members to four on this. It still…

AMORETTES – Born To Break (Album Review)

AMORETTES – Born To Break (Album Review)

High expectations don’t scratch the surface of my anticipation of the forthcoming effort from The Amorettes – Born To Break. Their previous release, White Hot Heat in 2016 found its way into my best 10 albums of the year. And I still spin it from time to time. Great gym workout tunes. Fast furious and simple. If AC/DC were female. It is said that they are “like Airbourne with Joan Jett as a front woman”…

TRILLION – Trillion (That 70’s Guy Retro Review)

Introduction It’s time for another round of my “That 70’s Guy’s – Retro Review”, where I uncover a relatively unknown hidden gem from the 1970’s that had a significant impact on my insane music addiction that I have had for over 50 years. I like to give my take on the record and what it meant to me and my buddies growing up in the moment. This month’s edition is “Trillion” – their self-titled debut…

L.A. GUNS – Made in Milan (Album Review)

L.A. GUNS – Made in Milan (Album Review)

Introduction Ok, I am not sure if the timing of this release was a good thing or not.  I recently (by recently, I mean yesterday) received the brand new L.A. Guns’ Made In Milan live album from Frontiers Records.  The reason for the dilemma of the timing is that my own podcast, the CGCM Podcast, is a couple days away from releasing our latest episode entitled The CGCM’s Greatest Live Records Of All Time. This episode is…

RED SUN RISING – Thread (Album Review)

RED SUN RISING – Thread (Album Review)

Samson cut his hair and got weaker.  Red Sun Rising cut their hair with a similar result. Red Sun Rising is back with their sophomore album Thread (Out March 30th).  Hoping to build on the success of their debut release Polyester Zeal, Thread in many ways is a more consistent record.  Initially I found “Deathwish” an odd selection for a lead single.  Being almost epic in nature it sort of dares you to pay attention. …

WHITESIDE’s DAUGHTER – Act 1 (EP Review)

WHITESIDE’S DAUGHTER – BIO Whiteside’s Daughter are a new band from Mississippi and Alabama.  They are streaming, for a limited period, what is what we would call in the old days “Side 1” of their album.  This goes out under the title of Act 1. They describe themselves as “Southern Gothic Prog” which is certainly a first as far as I am aware. The album is called The Life You Save.  It is a concept…

MAVERICK – Cold Star Dancer (Album Review)

MAVERICK – Changes Hard rocking Northern Irishmen Maverick return with their third full-length album, Cold Star Dancer, and basically, carry on from where they left off with 2016’s Big Red. There have been a couple of line-up changes with guitarist Terry McHugh leaving the band and drummer Jonathan Millar replacing Mike Ross but the rock on which this band is built still remains in the shape of the Balfour brothers, David on vocals and Ryan…
